The stars of the now defunct TLC series “19 Kids and Counting” could be coming to a city near you! It has been announced that Jessa Seewald will be making stops in several U.S. cities as a special guest at Southern Women’s Shows events in the coming months. Her husband, Ben Seewald, will reportedly accompany her to each show.
Jessa, 24, and Ben, 21, will be making stops in four cities on the South Coast this fall, according to the Duggar Family Blog. Their first appearance will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the Charlotte Convention Center on Aug. 29. Their final appearance will be in Jacksonville, Florida, at the Prime Osborn Convention Center on Oct. 17. (Check out their full list of tour dates here.)
The blog reports that Jessa and Ben will be answering fan questions during their appearances. Fans will also be able to get autographs and take photos with the parents-to-be. “Guests are welcome to ask Jessa questions on her wedding details, life as a newlywed, her pregnancy and how she is preparing to be a first time mom when she appears on stage,” the convention announced.
Jessa and Ben’s upcoming appearances mark their second tour this year with the Southern Women’s Shows. The couple traveled from Memphis, Tennessee, to Richmond, Virginia, in the spring for similar appearances. At one event in March, Ben teased the idea that Jessa’s was already pregnant when asked about their plans to have children. Now that the couple has confirmed they’re expecting their first child together on Nov. 1, could they have plans to share their baby’s gender? Rumor has it they’re planning to keep it a secret until he/she is born, but you never know!

Jessa and Ben’s last public appearance was at the 28th annual Alive Festival in Mineral City, Ohio, on June 20. Jessa’s sister, Jill Dillard, and her husband, Derick, were also present. Their appearance came one month after Jill and Jessa's brother, Josh Duggar, 27, was revealed to have molested several underage girls when he was a teenager. The scandal resulted in their family’s show being pulled from TLC's airwaves. The network officially canceled the program on July 16. However, TLC does have plans to have Jessa and Jill, two of Josh’s victims, to star in a documentary highlighting adolescent sexual abuse. The one-hour special is speculated to premiere on the network later this summer.
